Morning Free Association 2/12/16

WHAT A GAME!

The Bruins made amends for their horrific loss against the Kings on Tuesday with a fighty, shooty, QUOTA scorefest. Perfect Patrice was 2/3 of the way to a Gordie Howe Hat Trick. Rinaldo and Marchand also played “punchyface” with Jets players. Tuukka Rask made lots of saves. Brett “Dog Years” Connolly had 3 assists! I was so excited that I couldn’t pick just one picture to embed!

Anyway, how are you on this beautiful post-Bruins-win morning?

Are you ready for the grand opening this weekend?

What’s on tap?

So I’m sure you’ve seen on Twitter people uploading pictures of hockey players to what-dog.net
Have fun, people!

I have not seen this, but it’s most definitely weird.

Miss Muse

I apparently look like a German Shepherd. “Must be kept busy, intense, highly intelligent.” razz

Hey Muse, where’s your hoodie? I want to google map random post offices.

Miss Muse
Editor

Also you know, I find it odd that it’s already in Arizona but will take another 3 days to get to my place, apparently, but Chambers AZ, could very well be the last post office it checks into before heading to the one in my neighborhood.

Sad times.

So, who’s going to be the next person to order something and have it sent by Ground Delivery?

I had one of those Denna Laing hats on order from the Pro Shop. It took a week for them to fulfil the order. When I checked the Fedex web site the next day, they hadn’t heard of it. A few days later, It arrived an the facility 2 towns away at 7 am. When I checked the delivery time, it was going to be 2 days later by 8pm.
‘cuz screw it, we didn’t promise to get it to you any more quickly than that.

In this post-Amazon era, I’ve grown unused to this sort of silliness.

Miss Muse
Editor

I know, right? Amazon has completely spoiled us.

Miss Muse
Editor

It wa in Chambers, Arizona, but when you google the post office, it’s either hanging out at a Mobil station/Days Inn or hiding in some sagebrush or something. It’s left Chambers, AZ now, I’m pretty sure, as it checked in (maybe for a single, non-smoking room facing the pool) overnight, but there really is nothing doing it seems, in Chambers.

I’m rather disappointed.

Satan 81's Sister

It’s 47 degrees and sunny in Jones, OK.

Miss Muse
Editor

smile It was below freezing in Chambers this a.m., 27 degrees. grin

phonymahoney
Editor

So, I see like three houses, and almost nothing else. Who would stay in the Chambers Days Inn?

Also, Wikipedia specifically says they have a post office. I don’t believe it for one second. I bet if you look carefully at Google’s street view, there’s some Arizonan wearing your hoodie.

Miss Muse
Editor

smile It was cold this morning.
And I was thinking that maybe the gas station/hotel had a “post office” inside it, maybe? Yeah. Kinda sketchy. Hmmmm.

Satan81

The first two streets off the highway are frontage roads. Yikes.

Miss Muse
Editor

Maybe the FedEx checkpoint is in an underground bunker.

Satan81
Admin

It would save on air conditioning costs.

phonymahoney

Also, it seems like it’s home to the most boring stretch of route 66 possible.

Petrified Forest National Park and the Zuni reservation seem pretty cool!

Sock Puppet

I’ve been at that park. It is cool. Oddly enough, there was a German motorcycle club visiting there at the time.

Holbrook is also close to meteor crater.

Satan81

Cool!

phonymahoney

I’m intrigued by “Pigeon Spring Number Two”.

Satan81

How many in the series?!?

phonymahoney

Ooh! I’ll have to find out. Maybe there are prequels, too!

phonymahoney

Yes, this is information we need to know.

This is going to be one boring trade deadline day huh

Miss Muse

Boedker is a UFA after this year, too? Am I reading that right?

phonymahoney
Editor

Yup. And he\’s only making $3.75m now.

Miss Muse

Hmmmmm….I mean, not for us, but that could be really interesting.

Also, is that enough m’s there? “Hm?” to me is a questioning sound while “Hmmmmm” to me denotes thinking. Since it’s no big deal but still weird to you. razz Ha ha!

phonymahoney
Editor

Hey, that was VA’s opinion, I was simply an agreeing party!

Miss Muse
Editor

How is that any different from actually saying it? smile

The salary cap this year is $71.4.

The Leafs lineup tonight has a cap hit of 29.6M.

Good Morning
Early work day for me today as I’ve got a Dr.s appointment at 1:15 so hopefully I can get working on fixing my depression. First step is admitting right?

Third period was awesome last night & two things. It was good they didn’t play down to the jets + get a dominating win.

coffee on tap for a little while longer

Miss Muse

It absolutely is! Also you might be aware of this already but it’ll take time for the meds to kick in and even then you may have to adjust for side effects. When I first started on them I had bad nausea at first, then I’d be up at 4 a.m. no matter what time I went to bed and then I felt better but my sex drive went out the window. Then I got put on something else entirely which worked great for a few years until it didn’t so I got put on an additional booster. Sorry for any TMI but I just wanted to let you know that it might still take some time to get the right medicine working for you in the right combination but if you’ve been feeling down a lot lately, I’m glad you’re taking this really important step to helping yourself out. <3

carvinbass18
Editor

Yeah, I don’t expect it to happen right away, but just knowing that I’m doing something about it is a positive change for me.

Satan81

Hey, best of luck and health to you! Dunno how far into the diagnosis you are, but it might be that depression is symptomatic of a different issue. I got myself checked out several years ago because I thought I was suffering from depression. I was instead diagnosed with ADHD, and the depressive symptoms I had were the result of problems created by ADHD.

Satan 81's Sister

Good luck to you!

carvinbass18

Thanks smile I know I’ll be alright. Means a lot to me that I can open up about stuff like that with you all.

Kirk Luedeke’s article on Zach Senyshyn:

Senyshyn continues to march ahead

#idiotsavantGM

phonymahoney
Editor

Oh man. I really, REALLY like Senyshyn. Part of that is because I felt the need to defend him a lot last summer, and another part of it is because he scored twenty six goals as a rookie on the fourth line, with no special teams team. That’s a lot.
